MMQB Staff Week 8 NFL Picks

Who's getting a W in Week 8? The MMQB staff makes its picks.
Publish date:

It's Week 8! Our crew was pretty light on upsets this week, with five games showing spreads of at least a touchdown and several of those double-digits. We were unanimous on nine games, which is definitely the most all year.

But there are some games we're split on, with an even split on Chargers-Bears, and the majority of our pickers taking the Eagles to upset the Bills in Buffalo. What does this all mean? Probably that there's a big upset coming that we don't see right now.

This week we have two teams on their bye, meaning 15 games. Let's make some picks.

Here's who is picking games straight up for the MMQB this year:

Andrew Brandt, Business of Football Columnist
Mitch Goldich, Producer/Writer
Bette Marston, Associate Editor
Kalyn Kahler, Staff Writer
Conor Orr, Staff Writer

Jenny Vrentas, Senior Writer
